Flew two good flights on my 180. Last flight, I blew out the tail and it fell hard on the ground. Luckily, no damage and I finished that flight. However, the E7SE wasn't so lucky... For months now, I've been trying to get the tail adjusted right but every time I get something worked out or close, something else would pop up. I was switching through my banks on the Vbar to see what setting seemed better, but when I lightly used the tail and flipped it inverted, the tail blew out and it was uncontrollable. I hit throttle hold and was able to push the heli away from me and lay it as flat as I could get it. The damage... Canopy is shot, one main blade, and about $100 in parts. Not so bad. However, my brand new Glaciers were ejected into the canopy, compromising the packs. If you felt the ground shake that day, it was me. I looked at the V-Log to see that my tail sensor has completely failed and currently isn't working. So that was a costly $550 crash. And that doesn't include the Vbar. Not a fun day...

A good day flying all over the place. I did some great flying on the 180. I replaced the main shaft and all problems are gone. I did fly it at a different field and did some awesome low 3D as well as some skid bumps on the road. I then flew it at the field and tried a skid bump, only to have the grass catch the tail and send the heli doing a chicken dance for a second. I picked it up and flew it with no broken parts. Rob also helped me try out some Sportsmen maneuvers that I need to learn for NATS this year. A lot of fun there. Also did a good flight on the E7SE. A good day today. :)

It was an ok flight. Still have to replace the ESC and work on the tail. I did a lot of hard(ish) stops close to the ground and watched the young corn plants blow from the rotor wash.

Did a flight on my E7SE at the field and the 180 at home with the night blades.

I still need to work more on the E7SE but it's getting better.

I finally flew my T-Rex 600N and put the first tank through the break in process. Flew it under the lights.

I flew the 180 again with the night blades on Saturday night of the fun fly. Matt Botos was commentating my flight which made me fly a little harder than normal. I got inches from the ground a few times and just hearing the crowd cheer made me feel like a pro. (Even though I'm not. Haha) Extremely fun!!!

First flight on the 180, I flew under the lights and it started to rain hard. I slammed it into the ground but didn't break anything and continued the flight.
Second flight on the 180, I put the 2 blade head back on and put on my custom rail 156 night blades and it flew great!
Third flight on the 180 was even better.

E7SE flight was ok, still need to work on the tail gain.

Flew at the Heli Spring Fling at my local club. I didn't do much flying as, once again, having problems with my helis. The 180 is still flying but my tail will need to be rebuilt as I am getting a lot of slop in it. Nothing too bad. But my E7SE... I flew it for the first time since the ESC shutdown and I held my breath every time I flew it inverted. It didn't shut down but I'm having that really bad shake again. I just stripped the whole heli to fix it the first time, what can it be this time? I've been under a crap load of stress lately because of the problems with my helis. It just seems like everything I go to do fails or makes things worse. I just want to fly my larger helis...

Really good flight on the 180. I practiced some funnels and hurricanes and started practicing piro hurricanes.

The E7SE, however, was the first real flight since the vibration problems. It wasn't a great flight as I think I was just rusty. However, at the 5 minute mark, I was inverted in forward flight climbing when my ESC shut down. I immediately flipped the heli over and killed the head speed to the point where I could count the RPM of the blades! Luckily, I was able to regain enough head speed to flair it at the end and land it safely without even a bounce on the ground. I was very lucky and will look at the logs to see why it shut down.

A very good day of flying. I'm still a little sick but a lot better today. Flying the 3-Blade head and at a lower head speed makes for some great flight times! Also, I tested the E7SE after some work and finally got the shake out!

A good day of flying before I go to work. The temp was great but the wing was high. I still put on some flight in the day on both helis. Though, my last E7SE flight was cut short due to a bad shake in the head and tail. I am still investigating the shakes. The 180, I continued to fly under the lights at night after work.

Great flight. I did some more 3D and made some faster hurricanes. I also did a small over speed and a small auto from around 50' up. Awesome!

Practiced some tic tocs and some speed passes on the 180. The E7SE, I flew it for the first time this year and since the crash at HOD. I still need work done on the tail but it did great for what I did to it today.
